Disclaimer: Fresh Artistry provided me with one meal to try in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.
I love expensive, gourmet meals unfortunately the area where I live doesn’t have these types of restaurants.
I don’t get out of town often because of the responsibilities of the farm.
This means I have had to learn to grow a lot of the ingredients I want and cook.
As many of you know meal prep can sometimes take days depending on what you are making.
There are nights I just don’t have the time or energy to deal with preparing and cooking a meal.
This left me very little choice in what I could eat.
Then I heard about a company called Fresh Artistry out of Indianapolis who delivered ready-to-cook meals throughout the state of Indiana.
Naturally I wanted to check this place out.
Non-GMO, local sourced, natural-raised or organic foods are important to me. Thomas Blessing the owner of Fresh Artistry delivered my first shipment himself instead of sending it via Fed-Ex. It was nice to meet him in person and I enjoyed our conversation about where the food he uses in his meals come from. As much as possible he uses locally grown food including a selection of local raised Amish meat that are free of hormones, antibiotics and preservatives. He works with a chef who prepares the recipes that are sent out in the boxes. I had suspected as much when I saw the choice of recipes.
The meal I chose was the Peach-Chipotle Glazed Chicken With Smashed Potatoes. Talk about delicious! There was enough food that the two of us had supper that night and lunch the next day. The meal came with everything necessary to prepare it except a little extra sea salt, water and the pans. I received 4 Amish chicken breasts, 20 oz. new Yukon Gold potatoes, 16. oz. fresh green beans (the fancy ones not the regular kind), 4 Laughing Cow cheese wedges, peach preserves, extra virgin olive oil, chipotle base, ground cumin, butter, kosher salt and pepper. All of the instructions were included. They were step-by-step and very easy to follow. The meal took 30 minutes to prepare from start to finish.
